Hand-woven Peruvian Women's Baby Alpaca Poncho – 100% Natural Alpaca Fiber

Size: 100 cm x 110 cm

Fiber: 100% Baby Alpaca

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION 

The Chaska Baby Alpaca Poncho is an innovative, modern take on an ancient garment: the traditional woven poncho has been keeping the inhabitants of the Andean highlands warm for centuries. Woven in luxuriously soft, undyed black baby alpaca fiber, this statement-making women's poncho adds an elegant touch of Peru to your winter wardrobe! 

The incredibly lightweight and soft Chaska Baby Alpaca Poncho features stunning, intricately woven designs representative of the community where it was made, and is just feels gorgeous to wear. Each thread was lovingly selected by the hands of Demesia Sinchi Echame, a young mother of three. Her skill and pride in weaving has been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. 

Chaska, the Andean Star, is the predominant design in this weaving, and is also, coincidentally, the name of our gorgeous model!

The Chaska Baby Alpaca Poncho can be custom ordered when out of stock! Please allow 4 weeks for production time before shipping.

WHO MADE THE CHASKA BABY ALPACA PONCHO? 

The Chaska Baby Alpaca Poncho was woven by Demesia Sinchi Echame, a young mother of three. She lives in the community of Chaullacocha, a small village located on a windswept Andean plain at an astonishing 4200m (13,800 ft).

Miski means "sweet" in Quechua and this is the sweetest scarf you'll ever own! The Miski Wide Alpaca Scarf is luxurious, ample, and oh-so-soft! The rich shades of these baby alpaca scarves are made using ancient natural dyeing techniques - from the cochineal insect - once more valuable than gold -  for the red and rose tones, and the indigo plant for blue - as well as naturally occurring shades of alpaca fiber. 

This alpaca scarf is a classic unisex piece that is perfect to combine with a thick sweater or elegant jacket. For women, it can be worn as a voluptuous thick scarf or an elegant shawl wrapped around the shoulders.

The Miski Wide Alpaca Scarves were handwoven by an indigenous artisan from the Sacred Valley community of Upis, using handspun alpaca fibre from the weavers' own herds.
